Before the school closed, many fundraising activities tool place  - a Hallowe’en Movie night, the Coin Challenge and the Christmas Raffle. The monies raised by the Friends group subsidised after-school activities, purchased tablet covers, built an outdoor canopy and enabled the school to hold Mini First Aid sessions for all of the children.

Our 3-year plan includes the development of a handball wall. This involves significant groundworks along with the installation of suitable facilities. This would be a great asset to the children of the school and the wider community. We have raised almost 1/3 of the required funds and we hope our fundraising events this year will move us closer to our goal.

Unfortunately due to the Covid 19 restrictions we have been unable to hold a meeting but we hope to continue to support the school by raising some much-needed funds.

Our first event is the annual Christmas raffle which will take place on Monday 14th December.
